Notable American developer and blockchain cryptocurrency specialist Jed McCaleb is recognized for his extensive contribution in the blockchain world such as founding Mt. Gox, the leading and first Bitcoin market in the world. Jed has been committed to many different pioneer projects like as eDonkey, one of the first ever peer-to-peer decentralized file-sharing networks. Jed founded eDonkey in 2000 and developed by Jed and his fellow programmer Sam Yagan.
In 2014, Jed started his newest venture, Stellar. After identifying notable defects in the global economic system, Jed collaborated with Joyce Kim to cofound Stellar Development Foundation where he now serves as CTO. Jed manages the technological construction of Stellar (a universal monetary network centered on increasing financial participation/inclusion).
McCaleb has continually spent lots of resources and time thinking of methods of enhancing existing/modern technologies and discovering ways of resolving problems in our world utilizing these technologies.
According to a new interview by IdeaMensch, Jed perceived the concept for Stellar after recognizing what Bitcoin was (a dispersed database) and learning the many obstacles that could be resolved utilizing the unique technology behind Bitcoin/blockchain.
According to McCaleb, Stellar intends to unite those people that are currently underbanked in this world, which according to the newest World Bank statistics, is 2.5 billion. Financial companies are incapable of offering help to low-income people due to the high costs connected to serving this population. According to McCaleb, Stellar was begun to join different, siloed businesses together to support affordable and seamless money transfer by an open-source financial system.
When Jed isn’t working with Stellar, he uses a lot of his time investigating the potentials of Artificial Intelligence. That is exactly why Jed is involved in MIRI (Machine Intelligence Research Institute), a not for profit organization that is dedicated to designing new tools for ensuring the safe application of AI software for future generations. Jed believes in encouraging ideas that produce a global influence since you experience great progress when big, global concepts come to realization. He uses this code to success in all of his businesses including Stellar which was produced out of determination and an unmatched strength to defeat many obstacles.
